Company Update

What Is the Background of Telecan Space’s Top Management?

Telecan Space was founded in the year 2011 by Jean Paul Carnicer, who is still currently its CEO. Before founding Telecan Space in 2011, Mr. Carnicer worked as an Engineer Specialist at Telesat (Canada) as part of the company’s consulting group, for a period of over 10 years.

Paul’s experience spans from satellite programs using small LEO spacecrafts for earth observation, to telecommunication programs using massive six-ton GEO spacecrafts and complex SAR payloads. By working in the procurement of numerous satellites and launch services, he has gained experience working with most manufacturers, suppliers and launch vehicle companies around the world.

Throughout its career in the industry, Paul has contributed to the success of more than 40 satellite programs and launches. In the last five years alone, he has contributed to more than twenty market studies for key international players in the space industry and also supported investors, by performing commercial due-diligence in several deals involving satellite companies.

What Is Telecan Space’s Core Product or Service?

Telecan Space is a consulting, engineering and training company. Our services help organizations to minimize risks, make informed decisions and develop optimal strategies for their space programs.

That said, we have enjoyed from a very high demand of our engineering services. We consider this to be our core activity, which consists of the design and analysis of thermal, mechanical and satellite communication systems.

What Is Telecan Space’s Unique Proposition to Their Market Sector?

Telecan Space’s unique value proposition is to bridge the gap between the technical and commercial worlds, backed by an experience that encompasses over 50 space programs. In this regards, Telecan Space counts on a network of more than 50 experts, who are at the cutting edge of new space technologies in areas such us: satellite systems, payloads, antennas, launch vehicles, etc.

In addition, our contacts with key staff in major satellite manufacturers, satellite operators, insurers, space agencies and launch service providers coupled with our independent and unbiased perspective and deep technical expertise, ensure our services provide unparalleled value to our costumers in Canada and around the world.

Our clients range from satellite operators, space agencies, insurance companies, manufacturers to governments and launch agencies.

How Does Telecan Space’s Disrupt the Competitive Environment of Its Market with Its Product/Service?

Recently, Telecan Space has set up an R&D program that is aimed at developing a line of thermal management products for electronic components to be used in space applications.

Our company believes that thermal management is an area with lots of market potential. As satellites carry electronic components with increasingly higher dissipation, they would require specific thermal management products, which are currently absent from the market. Telecan Space’s line of Thermal Management Products is the type of solution that satellite manufacturers of all sizes and mission types and part suppliers are looking for, in order to address thermal design challenges in space.

In addition, Telecan Space is in the process of developing a series of online courses that will complement our existing in-class training curriculum and customize course offering. We believe that through this offering will be reaching a wider international audience. Our new courses will mostly focus on the management aspects of space programs, where we believe there is learning gap that needs to be addressed.

What Are Telecan Space’s Growth Objectives over the next 5 Years?

In the near future, we expect to continue developing our new line of thermal management products in order to introduce them to the commercial market within the next two years.

We also expect to launch our new online course offering before the end of the year, and for that purpose, we are currently evaluating potential opportunities for collaboration with leading training platforms and industry associations.

Finally, we aim to continue growing our consulting and engineering business in markets such as Asia and the Middle East.

What Competitive Changes Does Telecan Space’s Envisage Within Key Markets over the next 5 Years?

Below are some of the main competitive changes that we foresee over the next 5 years are as follows:

Consolidation of remote sensing/earth observation companies.

A surge in the number of companies developing applications for use of earth observation data.

An increase in satellite based IoT projects and applications.

The continued growth of the small satellite segments, resulting in a greater demand for suitable launch vehicle solutions.

Increased private and governmental efforts to promote interplanetary exploration and space mining.
